Prompt Our Actions
Today, take your pick.
The first reading sets before us life or death, blessing or curse (Deuteronomy 30).
Psalm 1 reminds us ‘that most of life depends upon the company we keep.’
The Gospel (Luke 9) challenges us ‘to lose our life so that we may gain it.’
I have chosen the opening prayer as a preparation for the 40 days of Lent:
Prompt our actions with you inspiration, we pray, O Lord, and further them with your constant help, that all we do may always begin from you and by you be brought to completion.
